Before anyone rips me for not using CGI, I want to let it be known that I am unable to use CGI for this application due to the server I will be using it on.
I don't buy that one. Sorry.

If it's a recent usable version of Perl, then CGI.pm came with it.

Even if it's not, CGI.pm is a single file. Download it, extract it from the distribution, and place it in the "current directory", likely the same place as your script, or add a use lib... directive to point to its location.

Even if that option is not available, because they've said "your application must fit in a single file" (a ludicrous requirement, but work with me on this one), you can edit your single file as follows:

BEGIN { ... insert contents of CGI.pm here, stopping just before the __END__ t +oken } BEGIN { CGI->import(":all"); } ... your code goes here ... my $foo = param("bar"); ... more of your code goes here ...
There. No excuses. Use CGI.pm.
